I love coming here and ordering pretzel hamburger buns, especially in the summer when grilling. Friendly staff, nice bakery.

We stopped in here for breakfast pastries many of the days we were in the St. Paul area. We fell in love with the peach muffins and then found that they change the menu monthly (we were there on the cusp of a month) and were bummed to find out they weren't available starting the second day of our visit...

We got an assortment of 12 dinner rolls to try - there were too many flavors to pick just one! They also give you freezer bags in case you bought more than you can eat right away!

While visiting relatives over the weekend, this place came up (it supplies the bread for communion at their church).

We have never been disappointed. Free samples makes it easy to decide. We especially like their fresh dinner roles for that nights dinner. A great combination is to go to Coastal Seafood's (literally across the street) to pick up the catch of the day (or your favorite) and pair it with a great bread.

We have stopped in here many times, for the excellent breads & muffins. We particularly like the chocolate babke. Everything is kosher which is an extra plus.
